Information about Michael
Keen, experienced teacher and tutor of both Business and Economics with an excellent track record supporting students in realising their full potential in the exam hall. I believe all students can achieve their best if they are motivated and if they are well supported with the necessary resources, including a first class teacher/tutor.
I worked in the City for 12 years and then ran my own business for 13 years before entering the education profession in 2003. I have been a Head of Department for 12 of the last 15 years and retired from full-time teaching in 2017. But I still teach in schools on a part-time basis - and still Head of Department!
Availability: Mainly evenings and weekends during term times, and daytime during holiday periods. But can free up daytimes during the working week if requested.
Tutoring fee is £40 per hour for home tutoring located up to two miles from central Kingston. Fee rates beyond the two mile radius are negotiated of a case-by-case basis, depending on approximate travel time.
Willing to travel: 50 miles
Experience: Experienced teacher and tutor of both Business and Economics courses at A-level and at undergraduate degree level. I work for three Examination Boards marking exam scri pts and also have extensive experience running 1-day and 3-day intensive exam revision courses outside term times.
Excellent track record at A-level Economics: e.g. A*-A 54.*% and A*-B 83.9% for a non-selective (mixed-ability intake) school in Guildford in 2018!
Feedback For Michael (8)
Only 2 lessons in, but my son is responding well and Michael is good to communicate on timings, what is needed for the session.
Michael has very swiftly and efficiently aided my son with his knowledge and confidence in Economics for A level. The work Michael is doing with my son is giving him a fantastic jump ahead to material that will be covered in class in coming weeks. This gives my son a fantastic upper hand and really helps him absorb the material fully when it comes up in class
Superb tutor. Michael is a genuinely dedicated, absolutely solid and knowledgeable tutor with infinite patience and commitment. He goes the extra mile to ensure the student is confident and well versed in the relevant subject. He is helping my son with University level Economicd and Accounting. Higher recommendation.
We`re absolutely delighted with Michael. He`s been so helpful to our 16 year old and we hope to keep with him for the next 2 years.
Micheal tutored my son just for a few lessons towards the end of his A level economics exam. Very pleasant and easy going tutor with good advice.
Great teacher! Really helped me with my doubts and catered towards my areas of weakness. :)
Michael gave our son 3 lessons in the holidays for Alevel economics. They got on well and our son benefited from the sessions. My son found Michael easy to understand and a good explainer who was happy to go at our sons pace . So we do recommend him and from our point of view he was friendly, punctual and flexible with tutoring times. So a good find on all counts.
Extremely pleased so far, experienced and helpful tutor.
